American Bulldog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    Free to good home: 2 and a half year old Female Purebred American bulldog by the name of Karma. She's my father's dog, but unfortunately due to his health, She needs to be re-homed as he cant fully look after her as much as she needs. She's a very friendly, well-natured dog with alot of energy, So would need a home with someone with a bit of time and a strong hand. Would also prefer a house with no other animals or small children She's fully house trained, and is also primarily an outside dog. It is with deep regret that we have to find her a new home, but it's for the best for her.

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-15-00636Cruiser (male)

Boxer    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    WA - Cruiser (m/4y) Cruiser has reluctantly been handed to rescue due to a change in housing circumstances. He is a really nice boy. Cruiser is a great alarm system but extremely friendly to all he meets, including dogs. He has never met cats before so we are uncertain how he would react, but his easy going nature may mean he'd be fine. Cruiser adores the beach and the car. He is strong on a lead to start with but a harness and regular exercise will sort that out. He is a typical boxer being very extrovert.

Boxer    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    VIC - Maverick (m/2y) Maverick is your typical sweet natured and playful Boxer, he loves to be active and on the go all the time as he prances and bounces around like a clown. He will require a home where he can join in the family activities so he can use up all that energy. Don't expect him to grow out of his youthful vigour in a hurry either; in true Boxer style he will be forever young. He is good with other dogs but unfortunately he is not fond of cats, at all.

Boxer    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    TAS - Max (m/1y) Max is a lovely boy, like all Boxers he is a bit of a clown. He loves to play and remains gentle, Max likes to play ball and enjoys noisy toys. He lived with children aged 8-13 in his previous home. Max's other joy is attention and affection from people. He has basic training so ongoing training would be an activity to keep him occupied. Great for anyone who does not object to a bit of Boxer slobber.

Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Koda is a great dog, and would best suit a family with one owner or a couple. Koda is very loving, she does get quite excited when you get home from work. She is not great around other dogs but may just need some training in that department. she is great with kids but due to her size she gets a little excited and can knock them over. This is very regrettable, i dont want to say good bye, however due to my situation i have no choice in the matter. Photos will be uploaded shortly.

    Wynn is an excitable puppy who needs some training. She tends to jump a bit until she settles down. Very happy dog who enjoys company from other dogs and people. She does not bark. She currently lives with 2 other dogs in a small yard. She needs a bigger yard and more contact, both of which I can't give her.

Boxer    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    SA - Bobby (f/4y) Introducing: Bobby, available now for adoption. Breed: Boxer x | Sex: Female | Age: 4 years old Temperament: Bobby shows traits of a typical Boxer, she can be a clown at times with her quirky ways and at other times is completely in tune and sensitive to her owners emotions. Bobby is a friendly girl who will literally lean on strangers for a pat and likes most other dogs socially, except for small fluffy dogs, nor is she a fan of cats. She likes to be the only dog in a household though so for this reason, must be homed as an only dog. She is an intelligent girl and will show you how well she can sit, come and walk well ...

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-27-00626Caesar (male)

Mastiff Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Caesar is an 18 month old Neo x English Mastiff. He is a beautiful boy who is very affectionate and loves cuddles. His only down side is that he's very unsure with strangers and will not let people he doesn't know approach him. This can be a great attribiute if you are looking for a guard dog as he won't let anybody he doesn't know into your yard. He is ideal for someone who lives alone and is looking for a companion and protection. This is a very regretful sale but due to a recent change in living situation and financial circumstances keeping him is no longer possible. I love him to pieces and would not have parted with him under different ... (Read More)circumstances. Caesar is fully wormed, vaccinated, microchipped and desexed. (Less)

Animal ID: still waiting in a cold shelter!!Mishka (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Located in New South Wales This delightful young lady is sure to win you over with her huge smile and her zest for life. Typical of the boxer breed, Mishka is very active and playful. She may be a little too big for young children but would make a great companion for a family with older children. She is a friendly girl who generally enjoys the company of other dogs and loves her human friends too. She will require minimal grooming but regular exercise to keep her fit and healthy. Being white, Mishka's new home will need to be one with lots of shade and access indoors.

Animal ID: still waiting in a cold shelter!!Coco & Whitey

Boxer    Age: Adult

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    NSW - Coco (f/6y) and Whitey (m/6y) Check our video: http://youtu.be/5xodmDcWpS0 A regretful surrender; this gorgeous pair of Boxers are in need of a home together. They absolutely adore each other and their new home must be one where they can continue to enjoy each other's company. Their family can, sadly, no longer keep them and writes the following about them: 'These two have been an inseparable pair since they were puppies. Whitey was born 18.8.07 & Coco 14.9.07; they are both now 6yrs old. They are very affectionate to each other things such as kisses, sleeping next to each other and laying on top of one another, sharing toys and ... (Read More)even their dry food. Whitey is a bit of a guts when it comes to dinner time, so his new family need to make sure Coco eats separately as she is a slower eater. It would also be wise to use a 'scoff stopper' bowl with Whitey which will slow down his eating to avoid issues with digestion/bloat. With people they know & trust, they love their time spent cuddling, receiving affection & playtime. Whitey is a very friendly boy with both other dogs & strangers, Coco however may be smaller but is the Alpha of the pair. She does not always get along with new dogs & strangers but with the correct introduction to both she soon warms up to them. Whitey is completely deaf but follows his partner (when he isn't asleep) with when to bark & when to respond. He responds to commands just like Coco does with simple hand gestures & food rewards, both being disciplined with simple commands. Both share interests in cats as they will sit & watch with curiosity, unless the cat decides to run away then they like to chase. They are both funny characters together & individually. Always wanting attention, cuddles & affection from the family. They enjoy their car trips with the windows down in the back of my station wagon. In the evenings they love to be inside on their mat and cuddle up to one another whilst over looking the family. The rescue would prefer they be indoor/outdoor dogs as Boxers can be very susceptible to the elements & the extreme heat and cold can have a negative effect on them. In Winter they will both need their coats on and in Summer have access to lots of shade, shelter and water (& not be walked during the hottest part of the day). Whitey does get allergies to some weeds. He has in the past had a rash under his belly which has been cleared up for over a year now and his tearing in one eye will get worse if he is showing a reaction to something in the yard. Boxers & many breeds can be affected by various plants/grasses in the garden. Wandering Jew is a problem & will cause irritation to many dogs, so this would need to be removed from their backyard. The two will spend hours laying in the morning sun, playing with their toys in the yard and chasing each other. Coco is fantastic at playing fetch and Whitey is great at intercepting her returns. In the summer Coco loves the water. Whitey will play in a kiddy pool filled with water too. A kids wading pool would be ideal for this pair to cool down and enjoy the sunny days.. These two are very intelligent, loving, funny characters and due to unforeseeable circumstances I am unable to keep them. They will be greatly missed but never forgotten in our hearts.' If you have experience with the Boxer breed & you believe your home could be ideal for this lovely pair, please get in touch for further details. We believe that dogs should be part of the family & share the home. The pair is located in Londonderry (Western Sydney) & this is where any potential meeting will be held. Whitey is deaf, so a family with experience with deaf dogs (or prepared to learn) is recommended. (Less)

Animal ID: still waiting in a cold shelter!!Max (male)

Boxer    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    NSW - Max (m/6y) The greying muzzle simply gives him a distinguished look; this boy is active, playful and behaves just like a pup - very typical of the Boxer breed. Max was surrendered to the pound by his owner and now finds himself looking for a long term home where he will be loved and cared for indefinitely. He bounces around in his kennel like and is delighted to be paid any attention. An agile dog, Max will require regular exercise and a reasonable sized backyard in which to play. His new family would ideally be one with Boxer experience, and possibly another Boxer in the home. Max is not a fan of little dogs, so a home with a ... (Read More)small dog is not an option for this guy (and no cats either). Being a Boxer, Max has special needs like all Boxers, so the home we are seeking should be one where they are familiar with the breed and can accommodate and care for a Boxer. As we get to know Max better, we will add more information, however we can say that Max is a delightful boy who is sure to please any Boxer loving family. Any further training should be simple as Max is very food focussed and will do almost anything for a treat ! If you believe your home could be ideal for Max, please get in touch! We believe that dogs should be part of the family and share the home. Max is located in Londonderry (Western Sydney). (Less)

    SA - Bubbles (f/3y) Bubbles is a lovely girl with a sweet nature who is looking for a family to enjoy her days relaxing with and getting out for some exercise too. She will do well in a home that will teach her things through positive reinforcement training as well as keeping her mentally stimulated through items such as treat balls and Kongs stuffed with her meals. Bubbles loves companionship and will thrive on being an indoor dog. Bubbles does have some skin issues which will need to be discussed when meeting her. Bubbles is available for adoption through application only.

Rescue Me ID: 13-04-18-00059Taz and Bobby (2 dogs) (male)

German Shorthaired Pointer    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Taz (aged approximately 7, we think) was rescued about 6 years ago from a pound in the ACT, and became best buddies with Bobby (aged about 9). After a short time on a farm in Tasmania with my brother, they came to live with us on an acre block in QLD when my brother moved overseas. Taz and Bobby loved the space, chasing and wrestling each other all over the place. They will bring balls back for ages (enjoying a few wrestling matches for it on the way back to you). We think that Taz was beaten as a puppy as he is terrified of fly swatters, flapping tea towels, or newspapers being shaken open. But he is so keen to please. He was taken to ... (Read More)training when he first came to live with us and was found to be very clever - he loved the challenge of the obstacle course, will sit and stay fairly well, and learned to 'spin' and 'roll over', which he loves to do for a treat and a some attention. He is very scared of thunderstorms, but sleeps outside quite happily in fine weather. If there's a chance of a storm we put him in the garage. He is the under-dog in the relationship with Bobby, but can stick up for himself when necessary. Bobby is the (slightly) less excitable dog of the two, but when in the mood can entice Taz to play with the best of them. Bobby is a great friend to Taz, never stealing Taz's food, and willingly sharing his bed on a cold, or stormy night. Both dogs are de-sexed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. They are wonderful with children, having lived with my two children since they were little, and have put up with many 'dress up' sessions, being dragged around in backyard games, with never a bite nor growl. Nieces and nephews toddling around after them have never been bothered either - even tail-pulling by them has not made either dog snap (though obviously we always step in when the dogs have put up with enough toddler's play)! My kids will dearly miss their pets - but our downsize to a much smaller block, and the increased time we are away from home with work, study etc, means that we are afraid our beautiful dogs no longer have the quality of life we want them to have. They have also started to bark a bit and my neighbours have understandably had enough.. my beautiful dogs are now more alone than with us, and they need a loving family or couple who are around more often.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Australia
    Dogs can make good pets in Australia if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Australia Fact Sheet
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
